I'm not going to say much about Gannon's 72-70 home loss Saturday to Cal. I will say that this one really hurts. I think I literally feel a pit in my stomach. Why?
* The Knights are now 1-3 in the PSAC West, good for 7th place. The only win in that streak is vs. hapless Lock Haven, and the first half of that game felt like a loss.
* This was a loss at home, which hurt doubly as bad because it's so tough to win on the road in this conference.
* GU has lost 4 of its last 6. The Knights are now 4-4 in January with games vs. first-place Mercyhurst and at dangerous Clarion next week. With the way the team's played as of late, splitting those games (resulting in 5-5 mark for the month) would be an accomplishment. Can you guess the January record of last year's mediocre Gannon team? 5-5. The way this year's team started, I can't fathom them being on the same level as last year's club.
* If Gannon loses its next two, they'll be 1-5 in the conference with 4 road games left to play.
All I did was share some facts with you about the state of the club and what could be looming on the horizon based on their recent results. Do you have a pit in your stomach now, too?
